6 January. Well, here we are. Not a very bright start to the year – just one of my regular 14-mile routes. But it's these regular rides that will be the key to reaching my 2,500-mile target for the year. They're not the rides that are particularly memorable, nor the ones that I necessarily enjoy the most. But, done regularly enough, they are the key to clocking up the miles.
Except that for today my iPhone had a funny five minutes and pretended to die on me halfway through. Which meant that the GPS wasn't functioning for about four miles. So only 10 miles (and exactly 10 miles) got recorded. Still, it's a start. And a reminder that things can only get brighter.
